Good question... that's run by Stanford University called the Marguerite Shuttle, and it operates a diverse fleet of transit vehicles, from vans to full-sized buses. To me, it looks interesting that a large, prestigious university operates shuttle vans like that, yet it is pretty commonplace here.

Never thought that there would be "european-style" minivans in US. When I was in the US I only saw and rode the truck(big van) front style "minivans" which IMHO are less comfortable than the type on the picture...

Well, if I find them, I take pics of them... it's pretty rare to find those here. I have so many images of shuttle vans throughout the collection, and yes, many of those American-designed vans can be less than comfortable than buses.

For a few comparisons...

Wow, that's very scenic! Somehow I imagined San Jose to be dull and suburban so I never expected it to be attractive.

San Jose is the largest city in the Bay Area too, reaching 1 million people. But, it has a low density, especially if you move away from Downtown... so yes, it is a pleasant surprise to find such an attractive place like in that image. It is one of those "unique" things that you could find along the way if you know where to look... that would be S 2nd Street, by the way, facing northwest from E San Fernando Street.

San Jose is pretty much an overgrown suburb of San Francisco.

Indeed. San Jose is actually an interesting story wherein, while it is part of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, due to its huge population growth over the past few decades, the city has its own "metropolitan statistical area" (MSA) as defined by the United States Census. It is called the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara MSA, and it comprises of Santa Clara and San Benito Counties.
